“Very noisy room, unhelpful staff”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The hotel is perfectly located for seeing the city of Antwerp - unfortunately, otherwise it doesn't offer many positives. Our room was on the fifth floor but was so noisy that we felt we were out on the road. There were also unending plumbing noises - the sound of toilets flushing, showers running - which, in combination with very thin walls, made it a very rough night's sleep.
The shower seemed to be broken in parts, so that to take a shower meant to spray the entire bathroom in water. Otherwise the room provided basic necessities, but certainly would not qualify as a 3 star hotel: single beds pushed together, little plastic bags of shower gel, ...
Unfortunately, the staff wasn't particularly helpful either. When we brought up the noisy, sleepless night we'd had, we got a sort of understanding shrug without any further form of apology.
Bottom line: good location but don't expect to sleep!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room but were not accommodated - if you can make sure you have a room at the ba...

The hotel is located bang opposite the Antwerp Central Station and is Ideal for a tourist as the location gives you loads of transport option. The Rooms are small and the bathroom even smaller. The heating works fine and the internet/ WIFI signal is not very great. The restaurant offers a really good breakfast with different kinds of bread and cheese in addition to cold cuts, juice, coffee, yogurt, cereals, cold cuts etc. The Steaks at the restaurant could be a lot better and I suggest trying a different place for lunch or dinner. The restaurant also has a small bar attached which is okay for someone who just wants to catch a drink. It has absolutely no vibe. Like I said someone who just wants to catch a drink. Overall a decent place. Sleep comfort is quite good as the rooms are sound proof.

This hotel is hard to spot from the outside. Banners and signs outside seem dingy and dull. Once inside, though, things get better. Reception staff is good, but requested early check-in was not possible. A secure area is available for holding luggage. Room provided was clean and comfortable. Only disturbances were caused by other hotel guests coming in late and loud. Breakfast buffet was okay continental breakfast except for a large container of bacon. I expected scrambled eggs to be brought out, but never saw them on any of the morning I had breakfast. Price for the breakfast was not a great value, but there do not seem to be many other alternatives. Many of the food service operations -even in the train station - were not open for breakfast service. For me, the location made the stay worthwhile. I will probably stay here again on a trip to Antwerp.

Room Tip: Ask at check-in how to report loud guests as a precaution. You may not need to ask for help, but it...

Cheap and best price....clean and neat. It is just opposite the central station and very close to the zoo. Free WiFi....the breakfast is not impressive though...but you can't complain as the price is also quite low. Ideal place to stop when touring with friends....good place if you just need to crash someplace at night after touring the city.

Main good point the hotel was opposite the station and as we were travelling on the trains very handy. Basis rooms, 2 single beds pushed together but it was clean with clean towels every day. It was NOT soundproof as we were woken up every night (except the first) by groups coming to bed? from about 1.30 to at least 4.30. Some of the group seemed to be on the next floor so sounds of running footsteps went on all night.
We asked about it and were told we should have complained!
Buffet breakfast was okay but basic.

Room Tip: On the top floor I think floor 9 and at the back, so no traffic sound.
